From Allison Aller, designer:
"I have begun doing a series of "Home Portraits", integrating photos printed onto fabric with embroidery and embellishment. "Barbara's Door", 13" X 18", was a gift for my friend Barbara Curiel, an English professor at Humboldt State University. The quilt arrived at her home right after she and her husband Michael returned from their honeymoon!
I had asked her for a quotation to embroider on the piece, and she sent me this, from Emily Dickenson: "Where thou art, that is home." Isn't that lovely?
